Food & Cooking Tips

Storing Fresh Shellfish

* Live shellfish should be refrigerated in containers covered with clean, damp cloths--not airtight lids. Discard shellfish that die. * Live mussels, oysters and clams may open their shells even in the refrigerator. Give them a tap. They will close if alive; if not, discard. * Cook fresh shellfish within one to two days. Source: FMI
